Clarksville, TN – The artist Helen Hiebert’s dazzling hand-made paper creations, from her “Peace Balloon” to an elaborate dress known as the “Mother Tree Project,” somehow evoke the lighter and calmer aspects of the natural world.
From her studio in Portland, OR, her tranquil vision has earned her a reputation as one of the country’s most renowned hand papermakers, with exhibits around the world and even an appearance on the children’s program, “Sesame Street.” «Read the rest of this article»
Washington, D.C. – It’s that time of year when top 10 lists seem to proliferate across nearly every web and news page in the nation, proclaiming everything from the best movies and TV shows to the most memorable photos and celebrities of the year.
Since I find it tough to encapsulate a year’s worth of information into a tidy list, I typically steer away from the concept. However, this was such a momentous year for military families that I decided it was time to hop on the list-making bandwagon.
So, here’s my top 10 most memorable military family moments of 2011. It’s certainly not all-inclusive, but I’m hoping it at least hits the highlights. «Read the rest of this article»
Earlier this week while at Kroger I noticed some baby lotion in the clearance bend from Earth’s Best Organics. Since this was already a brand I use with Elle-girl’s foods, I thought I would try it. I’ve loved it! It’s true lavender, and smells yummy, and it goes on so smooth, unlike other thick lotions. Elle-girl, who has always hated getting rubbed down with lotion, also seemed to love it. She lays very still while I apply the lotion before bed, then she carries the bottle around the house during the day. I started to notice as she carried it around she would sing the Elmo song that she learns on Sesame St.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, we love Sesame Street and Elle-girl loves Elmo! National Public Television offers many great programs for Adults as well as children 24hrs a day. NPR boasts of being viewer sponsored and therefore they do not buy into selling lots of products through commercials on their station. As a parent, I appreciate that. «Read the rest of this article»
Last night after a family dinner out at our favorite pre-baby restaurant, Old Chicago, we thought we would make an attempt to return to post-baby normalcy by going to a book store that we had not ventured into since before Elle-girl was born.
We never took a small baby to this particular book store because we didn’t want to be “those” parents of an obnoxiously loud toddler screaming its head off because it couldn’t get what it wanted, you know the type, the ones that people who don’t have children scoff at ?
We thought that now that our well mannered daughter was a bit older that we would try it. Not taking into consideration that it was 9 p.m. at night, and our toddler is usually curled up in her footie pajamas by this time any other night of the week.
It started off well. She seemed stunningly overwhelmed by the mass majority of her favorite thing in the whole wide world all around her, books!
